Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is not only a salvation for horses ..The meticulous care these beautiful neglected animals receive at Helping Hearts is above and beyond the norm. The attention and love given to these wonderful souls on a daily basis is tremendous....the transformation so heartfelt and inspiring.....just brings tears to your eyes. I am honored to contribute to this wonderful Rescue. God Bless....
Helping Hearts is one of the few charities outside of my church I never hesitate in giving my donations. Lisa's care and love for her rescued horses and a number of other needy animals is beyond measure. She is particularly kind to senior horses living out their lives in her rescue after they have been retired. She is always posting stories of her animals and these tales prove her genuine compassion and understanding of her animals' needs and personalities. I highly recommend Helping Hearts Equine rescue as one of the best in the nation.
Helping Hearts is a caring rescue who helps the worst cases of need. Lisa never says no, instead she says what do we have to do to start the process of making this equine whole again. She treats everyone with love and caring. This is one rescue that deserves 5 stars and more.
I had followed them on social media for a while. I went to a few tack sale and was very impressed by Lisa Post and her rescue. All her animals were healthy and friendly and the barns and grounds were well kept. She took in a horse that I was interested in and I went to see him. He was not a good fit for my needs, but she never rushed me and was so nice when I told Scout would not work out for me after all. All donations go right to the horses and she never turns away the old and ill--that is mostly she keeps and cares for until the end. I couldn't think of a better charity for my hard earned money to go to.
An amazing organization that does astounding work helping animals! Please do what you can to support these incredible people who are heroes to animals!
Even during the pandemic, Helping Hearts Equine Rescue was able to continue their ongoing efforts to take in new equines in need of assistance, as well as continue the great work that HHER has done for more than ten years with their current residents. Whatever the rescues need as far as taking care of their medical needs, shoeing, special feed, etc. ...THEY GET! (Along with the special attention they get from the volunteers). Whether they are young, old, horse, mule, mini, donkey or pony, they are treated as individuals with dignity and caring.
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is a great place to visit. Lisa is kind and caring with all the horses, ponies, dogs, cats, and she even has a pig. She also runs a boarding stable and offers dressage lessons. I leased a horse there and it was a great experience. I really learned alot. I would definately recommend Helping Hearts because it is very well run and another great thing....she also has a great group of workers and volunteers who help out with the horses.
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is a wonderful place. They make sure all the animals that go to their facility are taken care of for the rest of the animals life.
This is a wonderful rescue. Lisa is the most caring person who will donate to other organizations in need.
HHER cares tremendously for their rescues, many times taking them back and caring for these horses for the remainder of their lives. They work at making sure an adoption is a good match initially, but circumstances and life events happen and they happily take back their horses.í ˝í˛•í ˝í˛•í ˝í°´
Old and unwanted horses to young and unstarted horses, HHER takes them all in, gives them a second chance for happy futures. Finding new homes for these horses is no easy task, a lot time and money is required to rehabilitate and find suitable homes for these horses. Potential adopters are screened thoroughly and HHER does solid evaluations of the horses before offering them for adoption. I highly recommend donating to this rescue group or searching for your next equine companion there.
Helping Hearts is one charity I never hesitate to donate to. Lisa's dedication to her animals, especially horses in need is incredible. I have followed many stories of her rescues and have been amazed at the transformations in horses she has rehabbed over the years. Her love and appreciation of senior horses and donkeys in need of homes and loving care is beyond measure. An animal lucky enough to live in Helping Hearts' kind and generous care is one of the most blessed creatures ever.
Helping Hearts is one rescue that truly lives up to its name. Rescued horses (and other animals) get more than the care they need to thrive. They also get the love they need to blossom. The stories of rescues are amazing as are the results. Not too long ago, Lisa rescued Romeo, a nearly-starved and horribly neglected Thoroughbred. She posted pictures of his progress as he recovered under her diligent and knowledgeable care. Now, shiny coated, fleshed out, and started on his basic training, Romeo has been adopted and is heading for a new a loving home. His story is just one of many telling the true devotion of Helping Hearts.
Helping Hearts not only takes in rescues, but rehabilitates and finds appropriate homes as well. Animals are beautifully cared for and loved
I have been fortunate to have spent the past several years as a volunteer at HHER. Lisa Post is a truly compassionate person who has dedicated her life and resources to rescuing and rehabilitating horses. Horses (and all animals) are loved here and they are given the care they need to heal. Lisa is gifted in her ability to work with horses and has provided a sanctuary for unwanted, mistreated and misunderstood horses.
I started volunteering with HHER several years ago. Keller, the first rescue that I helped with ,was a partially blind, deaf and elderly pony. I developed a bond with him. He would prance around after I groomed him and sometimes trot over to see me. He lived out his long life well cared for and surrounded by love on Lisaâ€™s beautiful farm often side by side with his best friend, Simon a rescued Amish draft horse. I have been lucky to help provide TLC with many of Lisaâ€™s rescues including a Clydesdale named Bentley and a Peruvian Paso Fino named Gaitor. Lisa takes in horses that have been mistreated, neglected and often left to be auctioned for slaughter. At HHER they are rehabilitated with love and proper medical care. They learn to trust again. Lisa finds them good homes. She also takes equines that are not adoptable due to health conditions and lets them live out their lives with the dignity, love and care that they deserve. Lisa one of the most hard working people I know but to her, horse rescue is her life and passion.
Iâ€™ve been a volunteer with HHER, and have been a witness, and occasionally a small part of, the love and care given to the animals brought into rescue.
HHER is the forever home for several neglect cases. There I fell in love with an elderly mule, the victim of severe over work by her owners. Lisa brought her into rescue where she spent the rest of her days. She was beloved by everyone, and the time I spent with her, and the other equines, was wonderful.
This local rescue organization really steps up to take the old or even ancient horses/ponies/minis/donkeys that anyone else would just discard. Gives them the medical & other care they often need & letâ€™s them life out their lives with dignity. Love what they are doing!
Lisa tirelessly rescues and cares for so many lost souls to give them a better life and when possible finds them a forever home if them do not become full time residents with her....
Been following HHER for many years. I believe in the work Lisa does and knows she puts her heart and soul into those horses. Well, all the animals! I try to honor the memory of Bentley and donate what I can. HHER, Lisa, Chris and the crew are top notch. God bless them for their hard work!
For the love of a horse. Not just any horse. But a big, beautiful horse. One that I knew I could never own, but I loved with all my heart. When HHER had rescued him from auction, he needed a few hundred pounds before he would look like the magestic Clydesdale he once was. But a malnourished horse can develop autoimmune issues and it took time. HHER was there for him, like so many other equines over the years. Many loving homes have welcomed lucky equines, but Lisa continues to keep watch. Some horses make their way back to HHER if their familyâ€™s circumstances change. Some become permanent residents. Such was the case with that big hunk of Clyde, Bentley. The big guy had been thru some tough times and his body showed. He had issues keeping on weigh, his feet abcessed, but his spirit kept Lisa and HHER fighting for him. I remember the day Lisa allowed me to come down and meet Bentley and the rest of the gang. Here I was this fat, frumpy special ed teacher drooling over this huge horse! I commend Lisa and Chris, and all the others who make HHER the incredible rescue it is today. There are animal lovers and then there are those who seem to exist for the animals. Her interest and knowledge of all living things just exemplifies what an extraordinary person she is. And she has gathered a great team for the rescue. She fights for the animals but is humane when it comes to making THAT decision. She made sure that the group of us who loved the big guy all knew that as long as he showed he was willing to fight, she would fight for Bentley. Her and her team of equine specialists. A message I interpreted as â€śI donâ€™t care how much anyone cries, when itâ€™s Bentleyâ€™s time, I will do what is best for him. Based on what the vet and farrier feel as well.â€ť I am grateful for HHER for all that they do. I am thankful and grateful for Lisa Post because she took the time to educate me, teach me about what her rescue does and share her love and passion for equines with me so that this fat, frumpy special ed teacher could share that message with everyone who would listen. There are a whole lot of rescues out there....not all are good, not all are reputable. But I stand behind this one. There arenâ€™t enough ways to express that. Except one....go ask the horses!
Lisa and her team do whatever it takes to see that each horse's diverse needs are met. They know not all horses learn the same wayThey understand that what is good for one horse it may be the complete opposite for another.. they give horses a whole new lease on life. A true soft and safe landing when they might have lived a not so good life before. I don't have much to donate.. but I do when I can.
Wonderful home for rescue horses. I had one from there until I couldnâ€™t ride anymore. He is back there enjoying the retired life! I donate monthly.
Extremely knowledgeable. Cares about the welfare of the equines in her care
This is truly the best managed,most professional non profit I have ever supported. Lisa and the team are knowledgeable, compassionate and effective. They give hope, comfort, love and second chances to so many unwanted equines. Being a small part of this work is an honor and a blessing.
Lisa is diligent and empathetic to all the horses rescued in giving them the care and love needed...whether for renewed health, restored function....or for a quality of life to their remaining months/years
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is the real deal. Lisa Post is serious about protecting these magnificent animals and does so with clockwork precision every year. Helping Hearts is a steady, constant and reliable rescue for Equines to find respite when they need it even if that lasts for life.
My husband decided to take up riding and then wanted a horse. He is quite tall and was a very inexperienced rider at the time. We looked high and low. A TB came up for adoption at Helping Heart. I talked to Lisa about the suitability of a TB for a very inexperienced rider and she said Kole would be perfect. Kole was over 17 hand and very mellow. We went to meet him and he was exactly as Lisa said. A big, sweet puppy dog. They had rescued him from very bad conditions and brought him back to health. He and my husband had a wonderful relationship. Helping Hearts does an amazing job of caring for the animals they rescue and knows them and are very honest about what the animal has been through and what to expect. Kole and Jim had a wonderful relationship.
We had a horse she rescued. He had been starved and she brought him back. He was exactly what she described him to be. I also know she will take any horse back if you can no longer care for it. The care given to the horses is excellent and she treats them with kindness, compassion, and love....as if they are all her own personal horses.
Helping Hearts is run first and foremost for the the animals it saves and is tirelessly devoted to the well-being of all of their charges. I've seen this first-hand in the extraordinary measures taken to provide excellent care for even the most challenging rehabilitations of their residents.
Anyone would be quite hard-pressed to find an organization more deserving of support for their cause.
Helping Hearts is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of equines (horses, donkeys, mules). They rescue animals from starvation, neglect, and slaughter, and they put their whole hearts into providing the best care and rehabilitation possible. Iâ€™ve never seen a rescue work so hard to give these animals the best lives they could ever have, just walking through the rescue feels like youâ€™ve entered a wonderland. These animals have gained a sanctuary where they loved and exceptionally well cared for. This rescue is an amazing place, and they put their all into the care and happiness of the equines they rescue. There are no lengths they do not take to ensure their equines are safe, healthy, and eventually, placed into a loving forever home that holds the same values for care.
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue has helped to give so many horses, mules, and donkeys that second or even third opportunity at life. A life that offers them a chance to find a new loving home through adoption or a forever home right there on the farm-depending on their circumstances.
Lisa Post, founder, does an amazing job providing vet care, safety, and love to these beloved animals. As a volunteer for many years, Iâ€™ve seen first hand just how much love and care this rescue has given and continues to give.
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is amazing in every way...from the volunteers to all of the precious animals in need that find their way to this farm.
Helping Hearts is off the chart when it comes to a rating of just five stars. This rescue is totally committed to helping and saving horses. I have followed this rescue since it was founded and have witnessed first hand the compassion and dedication of everyone that is involved. The regular visits to Camelot auction to rescue the unfortunate horses that no one wanted to take home and knowing the sad thing was that these horses all had a home at one time and were given up. Owners that could no longer take care of their horses or just did not want them any longer for whatever reason... and Helping Hearts was there to give them another chance to find a home. Lisa Post, the founder, has done so many good things to improve the welfare of horses beginning with her vision to create an organization to rescue horses from the terrible fate of slaughter to the current status of Helping Hearts Equine Rescue as a non-profit. Then there are the many individuals and professionals that have devoted their time because they want to and because they believe in the wonderful things that are taking place here. The pregnant mare that was heading to slaughter, rescued because Helping Hearts was there, the horse that was dropped on the side of a NJ road rescued because Helping Hearts was alerted and immediately rose to the task of rescuing this horse. I could go on and on about the horses that are alive today because of Helping Hearts or those horses that crossed the "rainbow bridge" but were able to spend their last days in a green pasture and warm stall surrounded by loving and caring people. THIS is what Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is all about. Please take time to visit the webpage and read about our horses: http://hher.webs.com/
Both the owners & all volunteers unselfishly dedicate to saving equine and all animals in need. I can honestly say it is a pleasure to know such people. Keep up the good work!
HHER - A Wonderful, caring sanctuary for all horses, ponies, minis, donkeys, mules, as well as any creature in need of expert care, rehabilitation, and most of all, love. I highly recommended supporting HHER in any way possible.
Helping Hearts is a soft place to fall for equines in need. In a world where people donâ€™t value their senior horses and are looking to â€ś get ridâ€ť of them, HH takes in those it can. Itâ€™s a small but might rescue that uses your donations to help horses, mules, and donkeys in need.
Helping Hearts Equine rescue is the real thing. I've been a volunteer now 8 years with Lisa Post, president. She takes in the starved...abused...the just " put it down" horses..mules...cats and gives them a whole new life . Also not to mention all the amazing volunteers she has on board. The facility is heaven...Lisa Post is a teacher...leader... community supporter and most of all a gift to animals in fire need.
I am a volunteer now going on 4 years. Lisa Post the owner of Helping Hearts is successful because she is very educated and KNOWS horses and all little critters. Her heart is huge her energy unrelenting and being apart of this organization changes your life. My life has certainly been changed and still is being impacted. Amazing organization. ...
Helping Hearts is the Most Amazing Rescue out here Lisa the owner/founder has a heart of gold she gives her all to help not only Equines BUT ALL ANIMALS IN NEED!!! I can not say all the Wonderful things they offer but tell only the truth. Thank you Lisa for ur Wonderful heart u give so much to each broken soul.
Lisa Post is absolutely an amazing person. She has done wonders for all types of equines. Lisa has worked hard to bring each one to their potential. She has also made sure all of her resumes had the best quality of life.
She personally helped a very special horse "Laddy" when he was in much need. Me and lad have some history so this one really touched my heart and I am forever greatful to her.
I love the work hat Lisa and her volunteers do I am so happy that they give these deserving critters a seCond chance.
I have been to helping hearts numerous times threw the years. All of their rescues are well taken care of and are happy. They are a great organization.
Lisa Post is an amazing sole who cares for all living things with such passion. She is truly my idol.
Helping Hearts is the most caring, knowledgeable, and professional rescue I have ever experienced.
In addition to taking on the most challenging rescue situations, Lisa Post and her team share their knowledge freely and educate people who want to do the best they can for the animals.
As a horse person with a long career in non- profit work, I can honestly say this is the best Iâ€™ve seen. And I happily drive an hour and a half to be part of the barn family!
Helping Hearts is a well run rescue. Lisa truly cares and does the best by the animals she cares for with the help and support of numerous volunteers.
Helping Hearts is an amazing organization that really cares about all animals and always goes above and beyond to help them. The devotion to the horses who are blessed with finding their way there is incredible each and every day!
I rate Helping Hearts 5+++. Lisa Post is a truly first class human being who loves all creatures!
This is truly a great endeavor! Lisa Post goes the extra thousands of miles for ALL creatures. She's the most tirelessly dedicated person I know. A true Saint on Earth. I live for the day I can visit the refuge, and for when I'm able to donate. Please know Helping Hearts is a precious entity that helps endless creatures great and small âť¤ď¸Ź
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue takes in equines that might intimidate others. The medical and emotional care they receive is is unsurpassed. Watching the transformation of downtrodden, damaged horses, mules and donkeys into confident, healthy companions is remarkable.
Great rescue! Lisa is doing a great job and typically takes the most difficult cases.
HHER has been doing an amazing job for years taking the most difficult equine rescue cases and giving them a great life. From starved horses to senior ones on their way to auction (aka slaughterhouse), Lisa and the crew of volunteers give them the care and love they needed to blossom as happy horses.
All the work they do is amazing. Some come in such rough shape and Lisa and her staff rehab them to reveal what beautiful animals they become with love and kindness oh and proper nutrition.
Once again I feel compelled to let everyone know what a great rescue Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is. Lisa puts everything into helping the horses, ponies, mules, and donkeys who are lucky to have found safe harbor on her farm. I hear about and witness rescues who fail in their missions to animals, but Lisa pours every donation into the rescue. She's keeps in contact with her donors, like me, and never fails to be open about how her charges are doing. Lisa and Helping Hearts is totally dedicated to making life better for their rescues. I'm proud to help in a very small way as a monthly donor.
I am a donor to Helping Hearts Equine Rescue. They first came to my attention when the founder, Lisa Post, facilitated the rescue of countless horses through the old Camelot Horse Network on Facebook. I found my first horse, whom I've since retired to a life of leisure, through Camelot. Later, looking for a reliable rescue to donate feed sack coupons to, both a fellow horse rescuer and my equine dentist suggested HHER saying every single penny goes right to their equines. How can you beat that?! I've since made many donations big and small knowing Lisa and HHER work tirelessly to help horses, donkeys and mules get a safe landing and a new lease on life. They get whatever they need for however long it takes to get a chance to be adopted to the best homes or they find life long sanctuary with Helping Hearts Equine Rescue. And I feel great knowing I can be a very small part of a second life for these sweet souls.
Helping hearts has made a huge difference in the lives of several horses who needed help the most! Along with rescuing them, they spend the time to bring them back slowly to they're former glory! These horses that are rescued by helping hearts are given a second chance at lofe and love!
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is a wonderful example of responsible and sustainable animal care. They do a professional job on a daily basis for all their animals in need, but more importantly they have structured their program to plan for the lifetime of each animal and they know their limits. This means that they will be able to be there not just for the immediate need but for the life of the animals that they rescue. I applaud the care and planning that goes into each and every intake and their commitment to excellence.
I am beyond fortunate and honored to have this amazing rescue in my town. They are above 5 stars and the education and learning that is freely given is priceless.
When I see the eye of a horse change from despair to peace in I know HHER is doing it right. This NP is worthy of your support.
I had adopted Mason from this wonderful organization years back. I have seen first hand the compassion, dedication, love and commitment from the onset of receiving a needy resident to the completion and adoption of a for legged family member. Love, experience, dedication and provision of all medical elements needed is the standard for this worthy Rescue. Lisa, you and your staff are amazing and I love your for what you did by rescuing Mason and allowing me to adopt him only after you brought him back to good health. You are the most dedicated Rescue ever. Please, research Helping Hearts Equine.. and you will see as I did... they are amazing and do amazing things for these needy equine.. and others too.. The Best Ever!!!
Visited with my daughters horsemanship club and the tour Lisa gave was wonderful. The girls got to groom a horse and pet donkeys and mini horses and rabbits and a pig! I follow The rescue and Lisa on Facebook and have learned that what she showed the girls is a small small part of how she helps animals and conservation EVERY day and not just cute cuddly ones either but also amphibians and insects! Lisa and her org are awesome!!!
Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is just that, all heart! The love and compassion they show for the abused and neglected is truly heart warming. They step up in time of dire need to do the right thing for the horses that are so in need. The action I truly appreciate are the constant updates for their followers. From pictures to videos it's wonderful to feel apart of it when you're sitting behind a computer screen. I as a doner have so much respect for what they do on a daily basis.
I have been impressed with the holistic, gentle approach in which horses are rehabilitated at Helping Hearts Equine Rescue.
A kind and experienced founder and loving volunteers make it an outstanding Rescue.
I watch the amazing work that they do for the animals that they bring into their program. Most are the last ditch cases and they are diligent in making the animals lives comfortable with dignity. I donate when I am able.
does amazing work rescuing, rehabbing & rehoming neglected horses

I've watched Lisa rescue difficult case after difficult case. Every soul benefits from her experience, knowledge, and deep love of horses. Recently, she brought in a horse that I once knew. He is in rough shape but she fights for him every day. I'm so grateful Lisa and Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is there for the most desperate.
I adopted a wonderful horse named Logan from this rescue in 2013. HHER is very professional and very well run. They make sure the horse is the most important thing in the rescue and adoption process. HHER is a topnotch rescue.
Helping Hearts has been rescuing horses from the auction/kill pen for many years... These horses usually aren't ride-able and have many medical problems... To some they are disposable junk to be thrown away... But to the people from Helping Hearts there life's deserve to be saved from the cruel kill buyers and slaughter houses... Here are just two of the horses, Charlie and Scotty rescued by Helping Hearts that I fostered... Sadly both have passed on but because of Helping Hearts they where saved from a horrendous death and lived out their life's in peace... This is a noble cause...
I adopted two horses from HHER. The process is thorough on both parts of the adopter and the horse. Care is taken to make sure it is the best match for the sake of the horse and the adopter. Adoption contract is thorough and covers all issues that may arise ensuring the horse comes first and is always taken care of. HHER is the best rescue out there in terms of the needs of the horses being met. HHER is an inspiration for doing Rescue well.
I had to choose "general member of the public" for my 'role', however I own a PA rescue (HeartSong Haven). I greatly admire the folks at HHER for proven dedication they have shown to rescuing horses. HHER is truly a blessing to those equines unfortunate enough to find themselves in a bad way. I follow many other rescues, and don't know very many that are as dedicated as they are.
Lisa and Helping Hearts do a phenomenal job! They helped rescued horse who surely would have died a terrible death and have kept her safe!
From the moment I started following Helping Hearts Equine Rescue I knew it was a special place. The knowledge and dedication of the owner/founder, Lisa Post, is unprecedented. She always puts the well being of the animals first. Since becoming a volunteer Iâ€™ve seen, first hand, the transformation of dozens of animals in her care. Iâ€™ve seen them blossom from neglected and fearful beings into loving and beautiful horses and mules with the opportunity for long and healthy lives.
Helping Hearts Equine rescue does an amazing job providing top notch care for all their equines and other critters in their rescue. Lisa and her crew go above and beyond networking horses in need and educating the public. There efforts have saved thousands of horses lives and they continue to work tirelessly to end animal
abuse and help owners make better decisions.
We adopted my daughters first pony Rosie, from Helping Hearts Equine Rescue. Rosie was saved from a kill pen at an auction house pregnant, lame and sick. Helpingbhearts rehabbed her backed to health and she turned out to be the best pony ever.
I follow this organization regularly and donate whenever possible.
All of my donations have been used as directed and the progress made is clearly documented.
I prefer to donate locally and this is one of the best local animal rescues to donate to if you want to make the most of your donation dollars.
